Efficient data reduction increases profitability and lowers risk for cloud backup service providers.
Asigra Cloud BackupTM software is designed to alleviate the challenges of backing up and recovering data from your customers' sites into your multi-tenanted cloud. Asigra Cloud Backup offers unprecedented efficiencies to the data being captured, ingested, stored and transmitted over the network using the following methods:
- De-duplication techniques
- Backup and transmission of only new/changed data (incremental forever)
- Advanced Compression techniques
Bandwidth optimization drives down costs for service providers.
One of the biggest challenges with protecting remote sites is managing WAN bandwidth costs. For service providers, managing bandwidth costs is an essential factor in delivering a profitable backup service. Service providers' WAN costs are based on the amount of bandwidth consumed across all customers at peak times. Optimizing the amount of bandwidth being consumed in the data center mitigates steep fluctuations which lowers the operational costs associated with bandwidth for service providers.
The combination of deduplication of data, continuous deltas and compression, changes the economics of protecting data in service providers' favor. Service providers can reduce the amount of WAN bandwidth utilized, minimizing operational costs, and reduces the amount of storage capacity required to deliver the service. This combination is not a one-time cost savings, but an ongoing requirement in ensuring the economic viability of the service. Bandwidth Throttling functionality enables bandwidth management as well.
